Temperature enhancement of thermal Hall conductance quantization

AbstractThe quest for non-Abelian quasiparticles has inspired decades of experimental and theoretical efforts, where the scarcity of direct probes poses a key challenge. Among their clearest signatures is a thermal Hall conductance with quantized half-integer value in natural units $ pi^2 k_B^2 T /3 h$ ($T$ is temperature, $h$ the Planck constant, $k_B$ the Boltzmann constant). Such a value was indeed recently observed in a quantum-Hall system and a magnetic insulator. We show that a non-topological "thermal metal" phase that forms due to quenched disorder may disguise as a non-Abelian phase by well approximating the trademark quantized thermal Hall response. Remarkably, the quantization here improves with temperature, in contrast to fully gapped systems. We provide numerical evidence for this effect and discuss its possible implications for the aforementioned experiments.
